Maui police arrest man, 87, in fatal crash; identify victim in another hit-and-run

Maui police made an arrest in one hit-and-run fatality over the weekend, and identified the victim in another.

Officers arrested an 87-year-old Kula man in a pedestrian accident in Kula Friday that killed Destiny Delima, 30, of Kahului.

Police arrested the man Monday and recovered a white 1998 Ford Explorer from his home. He was released pending investigation.

Destiny Delima, 30, of Kahului died after she was struck by a vehicle traveling on Pulehu Road Friday night. Delima was walking near the east shoulder when she was hit and the vehicle fled, police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Maui police also identified a pedestrian killed in another hit-and-run crash on Piilani Highway Sunday as Hannah Simmons of Kihei. They are still looking for the vehicle that hit Simmons on Kaiwahine Street at about 8:50 p.m.

Police said the vehicle, possibly a blue Dodge or Chevy full-sized pickup truck with a modified lift and tires, made a left turn onto the highway when it struck Simmons who was in a marked crosswalk. She was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition where she later died from her injuries.

Anyone with information on either hit-and-run crashes is urged to call the Maui Police Department at (808) 244-6400.
